Thanks for the pointers. I don't have much to say that I've not  
already said. The issues you discuss vis-a-vis XMP seem more  
political than technical. Clearly, there is a requirement for  
extensibility. Beyond that, it's a bit hard to determine what the  
actual technical requirements are (no surprise, really). I wonder if  
aligning XMP with some RDFa profile would make sense.

Actually, I think there's a lot of milage to be gotten out of being  
less free and easy. One problem we faced at UMD with some of our  
tools is that they were *too* open and flexible. Photostuff, for  
example, would build forms for "person" from all the ontologies you  
loaded. So you got these HUGE forms with dozens of fields. And all  
you wanted to do was mark up the photo with the fact that it was a  
photo of your niece.

Anyhoo.

Cheers,
Bijan.
